Education & Best Practices

For many, the idea of a personal growth plan goes together with business planning and marketing strategies. However, many real estate agents and small business owners neglect these personal development roadmaps - often due to oversight or lack of time and resources.

Investing in yourself doesn't have to be excessive or time consuming. In fact, there are many ways to set small milestones for your personal development goals and overall business growth plan.

Make micro adjustments.

Many folks immediately think of self improvement when faced with their own growth planning. Thoughts of that sort of improvement often award a begrudging sigh of disapproval or slump in posture. Thoughts of dedicating unavailable time and resources run rampant.

But that doesn't have to be the case. In fact, there's a much simpler solution: make micro adjustments.

Your personal growth plan and development efforts can be as simple as making one small change at a time. For example, if you find yourself to be more productive in the evenings, but more personable during the brunch hours, move a few tasks around to make the best use of your time.

Even smaller adjustments that can heavily benefit your personal development plan include:

  • making more sustainable purchases,
  • ensuring you take services and products you use up on their training opportunities occasionally - to start,
  • and doing some light reading on verticals congruent to your industry, like mortgage or insurance.

Set a few minutes aside for your personal growth goals.

Another valuable facet of personal growth plans that doesn't often get enough recognition is taking just two or three minutes a day to actively reflect on your goals.

Just thinking about how you'd approach a hypothetical situation for a couple of minutes a day triggers your brain to start building connections associated with personal growth. This allows you to naturally focus on progressing your personal growth plan without overstimulating your brain too often, eventually causing a form of burnout.

When it comes to working on your own personal growth plan, be sure to set clear goals. However, don't start with goals that may be outside your true scope. Be sure not to inadvertently set yourself up to fail, and always take time to reflect on your obstacles as well as your successes.
